What happens if you put hair dye in the fridge?

Do you need heat for hair dye?
Heat opens up the cuticle, much in the same way ammonia does chemically. This is why some hair dyes will suggest covering your head or applying heat while the color sets. The extra heat, whether from your own head or an external source like a blow dryer or steamer, optimizes the dye’s processing for stronger results.
